Two of the creatures that Willy Meyers (Benjamin Easterday) states the soldiers are trained for are Mansquito and Sand Sharks. Corin Nemec, the other soldier in the scene, starred in the movies featuring these creatures - although he played other characters. Sand Sharks (2011) was also produced by Little Dragon Productions, who produced Dragon Wasps. Benjamin Easterday and Corin Nemec team up again in Dracano (2013) See more »

Fun and exciting creature feature
2 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

After learning of her father's disappearance in the Amazon jungle while working on secret research projects, a woman and her friend enlist a group of soldiers to help them only to find their work on mutated wasps has produced fire-breathing creatures infesting the area.

This was pretty much another typical Sci-Fi Channel creature feature, so this one's pretty obvious about itself quite early and often. With the creatures' appearing to be the same bland and totally fake CGI that at least has the decency to give them a bright color design to somewhat hide the fakery, yet whenever there's a close-up of them it diminishes almost immediately. There's also the simplistic plot done hundreds of times over without variation or the rather mundane pace that deals with outside areas other than the bugs to take up the majority of the running time, thereby reducing the confrontations and interactions with the creatures and reducing the gore quotient considerably. That said, the few action scenes present are a lot of fun, generate some pretty interesting scenes within and are full of pretty wild scenarios. Of course, the finale is a bit of fun, full of explosions, gunfire-riddled shootouts and the application of one of the movie's best qualities as it uses a rather novel idea against the creatures, generating a bit of smarts in an otherwise mundane effort. All in all, it's about the same as would be expected in such an effort.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence and Language.
